This training programme evolved from a need to increase physical literacy and movement skills from early years. Evidence based research demonstrates early movement intervention is key in increasing physical/social and emotional well being, not to mention impacting on reducing childhood obesity. This course is delivered by internationally acclaimed tutor and author Helen Battelley who is passionate about the early years, physical development, dance and movement.
Working alongside the early years framework ‘Development Matters’ the course demonstrates how each ‘goal’ can be achieved through movement.
